NSF has recently asked the scientific community to comment on (1) its strategic planning process for the 2022-2026 period, and (2) how it can expand its efforts to guide internal evidence-building and program evaluation processes.
Psychological science expertise is critical to the U.S. COVID-19 pandemic response, argues APS in a new letter to U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s COVID-19 advisory board. As this important board grows, APS repeats a call that a research psychologist be considered for membership.
The initiative, called UNITE, aims to understand and address racism in the broader scientific community and more specifically in NIH-supported work. APS’s comments, informed by psychological science, echo the value of improving inclusivity and diversity in science.
